Business plan - analysis, development strategy and forecast of all economic phenomena at the enterprise, which describes the full life cycle of products, from its creation to implementation.

Drawing up a business plan will save any enterprise from unforeseen expenses, and at the initial stage it will show whether it is profitable to start this enterprise at all, whether it will generate income and its payback period.

A professionally drawn up business plan must meet a large number of requirements formulated on paper, with special calculations. This is the very first and most basic step on the road to big business.

A business plan is a cumulative display of cash flows and all economic changes. But, as in any development, so in a project, it is necessary to maintain consistency and moderation, and not strive to raise the bar too high in development. Everything should be extremely transparent and realistic.

A well-designed business plan can attract not only sources of additional funding, but also help to find highly qualified personnel and reliable suppliers. And the level of the business plan drawn up shows the reliability of the owner of the enterprise and his seriousness.

A business plan should not only be written correctly, but it should also be readable and attractive for various types of investment. This, of course, depends on the business idea and the profitability of the project.

A business plan can and should be used both for a newly created enterprise and for an already functioning one, at a new stage of its development or reconstruction.
